Playwrights, Composers, Lyricists and Authors
His first one-act was produced at Lon Morris Junior College and has since vanished in some forgotten trash can. After moving to Houston in 1970, he soon found other writing assignments at AstroWorld, educational radio, night clubs and local television.
His first play, Rest In Peace, was published in 1976. Still, writing was only a sideline along with several other odd jobs, which included playing piano in pizza parlors, acting in local commercials, industrial films and on stage, building scenery and selling pianos and organs.
More plays got published along the way, Pat's wife, Rose Ann, taught him the joys of using a computer. This, coupled with his conviction to drop everything else and write full time, proved to be a turning point in his life.
As of this writing, Pat Cook now has over one hundred and thirty plays published by seven publishers in the United States and England. He has also had some of his works translated into German and Dutch.
